CHICAGO — Five youths between the ages of 11 and 15 shot on the South Side Sunday evening, authorities said.

Two girls, 11 and 14, were critically wounded. A boy, 14, and a girl, 15, were taken in serious condition to area hospitals, said Chief Verdi Allen, a Fire Department spokeswoman.

Later, a 14-year-old girl walked into St. Bernard Hospital with a graze wound in the buttocks from the same shooting. She was in stable condition, police said.

The shooting happened at 7:38 p.m. in the 6500 block of South Michigan Avenue, said Officer Veejay Zala, a police spokesman.

Zala said the children were on the street when someone fired shots out of a moving car. Police had no more information Sunday night.

The 11-year-old girl and 15-year-old girl were taken to Stroger Hospital, Allen said. The boy and the 14-year-old girl were taken to Comer Children's Hospital.

Twenty seven other people were wounded by gunfire since Friday, and seven killed.
